September 7th we reached our final destination for the winter. It had been a nice trip. We enjoyed visiting the places.
The winds were very light so we had to motor quite a bit. Except for the very last part, sailing into the Baía de Lagos. The wind picked up and I was steering :-)
In Lagos we had the autopilot fixed. The alternator turned out to be beyond repair. Marc would get a new one at home which I would bring next time I'd come over.
Clare came over to join us a couple of days later and we spend some nice time in Lagos.
It's the best place to leave your boat for the winter. Nice climate, nice place and a nice sheltered marina with a pool :-)
While Marc and Clare were working from time to time, I did all kinds of jobs on the boat, including a lot of cleaning and polishing :-)
October 8th I flew back home, to celebrate to birthday and to get a new hip.... :-/
